Are diaper bags necessary
I didn register for a diaper bag when I was pregnant but I received 2 different dia louis vuitton outlet per bags anyway. As my son grew older, his needs changed so the amount and type of stuff I needed to bring changed as well. I started off carrying a regular diaper bag but the times I wore him in a sling, there was a handy little pocket for a spare diaper, a couple of wipes and my keys. Then I graduated to a messenger type bag with lots of pockets inside. After that, I started using a backpack.
I have to say using the backpack was the bes louis vuitton outlet t decision ever because it allowed my hands to be kept free and I didn have to worry about the strap from the diaper bag falling off my shoulder. There was plenty of room in the backpack and it was made out of rugged material. I still use the backpack for other things to this day, like carrying groceries. I prefer to use my purse. but Lalina0508 thought don need a diaper bag per se any large bag will do. Joaniebt did the same thing I did: don own one or planning to get one. My back pack have a lot of pockets and it perfect for us you found a diaper bag to be a necessity? Did you register for one louis vuitton outlet ?
I think the one benefit of a bag marketed as a diaper bag is, aside from the pockets which are hard to find in purses, the wipe clean lining. Anything that is cloth just won do for me. Crumbs, milk from pumped bottles that leaked on the way to Grandma spit up and snot from burp clothes, sticky from who knows where it just seems to magically appear, there is so much crap that I have to clean out. Not to mention I use cloth diapers so I NEED to be able to clean and air out that bag on a regular basis. They have backpack versions and they will last forever, plus are cute to boot. I a fan, obviously, I never want to go back!
I wanted a backpack (was looking for a nice daypack at our outdoor retailer) and I think my mother in law heard me do I think that? Because I got a Vera Bradley diaper bag. I cannot stand those bags. But I know that they cost a pretty penny so we use it. I still want a backpack though; especially when the weather is nice and we start hiking as a family.
Even though I hate how my diaper bag looks, it still functions well and it is all I have to carry. I just throw my phone and my wallet in there and I set.
Yes I find a diaper bag a necessity, but then again I love all kind of purses! I would never put bottles in one of my purses. I carry a diaper bag and a purse. In fact I have 3 diaper bags, one I registered for and got, second I was gifted I did not register for that one, and the third is a handmade my aunt got for me, it has my son name embroiled (sp?) on it, I use all 3 regularly. I do not carry a back pack, not really my style at all. Then again, I only have one son, maybe if I had more kids I would feel different.
We use a backpack. I hate the cute baby things with teddy bears on them and what not. It has lots of pockets, a place for the changing pad, and 2 bottle holders. Plus its black so hubby can wear it no problem. And when we fly i can put my laptop in the padded laptop section and have a diaper bag without having to bring another bag. But to each their own. That what works best for us. louis vuitton outlet You will need some kind of bag to carry supplies for baby, as they grow you need to carry less and less for them.
My son is almost 3 and I still carry a diaper bag. We are on our 5th one. Our first one was a huge Jeep Diaper bag more like a small suitcase. But I am paranoid and have to be prepared no matter what (Extra jackets, umbrella, bottles of water, sunscreen, bug spray, plus extra clothes, extra shoes, diapers, wipes, his medicine bag (incase he hurts himself or spikes a fever), and a small bag of toys. It lasted a few months before it broke (and it was our most expensive bag!!). Everyone complained about how big it was, so our next one was very small. It did not work for me I have a compulsion, and I have to have everything. SO then I went to a regular diaper bag. We had it for a few months and it broke. Our next bag was a backpack. Worked great!! I loved it. But that broke after 2 months!! I didn have time to run to the store, and needed a bag, so I grabbed our carry on duffle bag from our luggage and have been using that since (Going on 6 mths). I will probably always carry a bag as long as I have small children, lol.
With my first, I registered for a diaper bag at Target and received it at one of my showers. I also got a really nice Enfamil diaper bag at the hospital when my son was born. Then, I got a third as a free gift from a parenting magazine called That one was probably my favorite. It was small and when we were just running out for a minute it was all I needed. My mother in law was his babysitter from when he was six weeks old until he was three. She ruined all three bags. I had actually hid the smaller one from her (juvenile I know), because I knew she would use it all the time and not the others, but she eventually found it and ruined it too. She claimed that it was a pain to have to carry a big bag around. She would cram too much stuff into the small one and eventually it split down the sides. I don know how she ruined the two bigger ones. We had another boy in June of 2010, and I have been using the same bag since he was born and it still looks like new. For my oldest, which is about to turn 5, I obviously don use one anymore. For my youngest, 19 months, I still do because I like the convenience of having just one bag to carry. I don like having to lug around my purse AND a diaper bag. When we run out for a minute then sometimes I will stick one diaper and the travel wipes in my purse.
